| About Our Speaker(s) |
This project was created to take away emphasis from using “Black” as a discount code via Black Friday. Not for a discount on Friday – but just because.
This project has been a year long experience for Roux Events, with a huge shout-out to the creator of BLAX, Khailill Knight-Papaioannou and HR Professional, Michaela Baker; whose Facebook posts started a call with #blaxfriday for getting to know local Black Business Owners, and the importance of representation and financial support.
Many Black-Owned Businesses are lumped into categories labeled “PoCs” or “Minority” and with a higher population of “PoCs” in Tucson, they are often overlooked, and it’s rare to see Black-Owned Businesses receive recognition or granted access to financial assistance. This what the movement is about #BlackLives. Support for Black-Owned Businesses.
